When running upgrade-nonroot it’s slow and never - at least not in a few hours - goes further than the following lines (though the exact details might have changed):
Unpacking linux-headers-5.10.0-9-amd64 (5.10.70-1) over (5.10.70-1) …
Unpacking linux-headers-5.10.0-8-common (5.10.46-5) over (5.10.46-4) …
After aborting this i have been prompted to run ‘sudo dpkg --configure -a’ and did that and restarted a few times and so on but it didn’t help.
Are you using VBox or KVM?
It’s VirtualBox and I have already increased RAM to 3072 MB on Workstation and 2048 MB on Gateway.
RAM is sufficient indeed.
(= Which version did you originally download?)
Enough disk space available,
- on the host?
- inside /boot in VM?
- inside VM generally?
Check inside VM:
Build version: 188.8.131.52 (XFCE)
Plenty of disk space on the host, there’s no seperate /boot shown by df -h, /dev/sda1 mounted on / shows 89G/90G available.
